Course overview

In such a highly regulated industry and in these turbulent and uncertain times, understanding the key challenges of negotiation and drafting an effective and watertight contract on an international level are complex topics. They can be difficult for even the most well-equipped in-house lawyer and most often it is not the lawyer in the driving seat. Commercial managers from all areas of the pharmaceutical industry are leading negotiations and drafting and managing key contracts on a daily basis. It is vital that both legal counsel and commercial executives not only have the key skills and tactics to create a win:win scenario but also the knowledge to ensure any agreement is within the laws and regulations. The alternative is the exposure of the organisation to unnecessary risk and costly disputes, especially with the complication of Brexit.

The programme consists of five modules which will:
  • Deliver an in-depth examination of intellectual property issues that affect pharmaceutical industry agreements
  • Focus on competition regulations pertinent to pharmaceutical industry agreements
  • Analyse the commercial and legal issues affecting pharmaceutical industry agreements
  • Examine collaboration and licensing agreements
  • Feature an in-depth workshop on effective negotiation skills

The delivery style
This unique and highly interactive three-day programme looks at all stages of the contracting process and aims to deliver applied training through a balanced blend of practical learning. The presenters will use a mixture of practical exercises and cases from the pharmaceutical industry to ensure you leave the seminar with the knowledge and skills to perfect all stages of the process.

Who should attend?

Personnel from R&D, clinical, regulatory, commercial, sales and marketing, manufacturing, distribution and purchasing functions, including:
  • In-house counsel
  • Commercial and contract managers
  • Business development managers
  • Purchasing and procurement
  • Heads of legal departments
  • Legal advisers
  • Patent, IP, trade marks or licensing counsel

The key objectives

  • Understand the key intellectual property issues affecting pharmaceutical industry agreements
  • Find out about the implications of SPCs for pharmaceutical industry agreements
  • Explore the current issues relating to IP including the Unified Patent Court and the challenges of Brexit

The rise and rise of the negotiator

Nothing exemplifies the modern pharma company as much as the growth of joint ventures, sub-contracting and licensing. All of these require the pharma executive to be able to negotiate and, often, to be able to lead others through the negotiation process.

  • The increase in negotiated relationships
  • Technical AND commercial skills
  • Recognising a negotiation
  • Great role models

Practical exercise: Negotiate and succeed & Structure for control

Working in teams, delegates are asked to resolve a multi-variable, multi-party business problem. The output of the exercise will form the backdrop for the following sessions on structure and influencing.

Structure for control

The research tells us that negotiation success is not related to any single aspect of the complex interactions that take place in any negotiation. However, above all else, the party that negotiates best gets the best result. The keys to negotiating well are controlling the negotiation and managing the process.

  • Control for success: key planning checklist to negotiate well
  • Structure for success: creating the space to agree
  • Trading for success: understanding relative values

Personal style and negotiation

This session helps us hold a mirror up so that participants can reflect on their own style. We look at why other styles irritate us – and how we negotiate with those people we find difficult to deal with.

  • Our lead style (and our fallback style)
  • The A to E of negotiating styles
  • Personal strengths and weaknesses

Practical exercise: Moving into engagement & Influencing and persuasion

Working in teams, delegates are asked to use their knowledge of their own style and those of others in their teams to agree strategies and tips for dealing with other styles and getting the most out of the negotiation.

Influencing and persuasion

It can be argued that the more we can influence someone to our position and the greater agreement we can build, the less we have to give away in our negotiation. This session looks at how people are persuaded and how the expert negotiator can use this knowledge to their benefit.

  • Persuasion psychology
  • The range of levers available
  • Focusing your persuasion

Reviews of IPI's Drafting Commercial Contracts for the Pharmaceutical Industry training course

This course was brilliant and covered all the key points. The speakers were highly knowledgeable and had practical insights and fresh perspectives on drafting issues and implications. Having multiple speakers allowed for a fresh and dynamic course, and increased the amount of information absorbed.
